A roof at a construction site at Storo in Oslo has collapsed partially. The fire department is working to prevent more parts of the building collapsing.

“There is nothing to suggest that people have been affected, but we can not rule it out yet.
“There is talk of a glass façade, and the wall stands currently and bulges out, so there is a danger that they too could collapse,” said operations manager Marita Aune Oslo police to newspaper VG.
Aune says to NTB that they got the message about the incident from a passerby at 19:36. There is talk of a former car dealership in Vitaminveien next to the petrol station Circle K.
“A roof that collapsed inside the construction site. There is a danger that a wall and more of the roof structure could collapse.
“We are on site along with the fire department to rule out anyone getting involved. But basically, the building will should have been empty,” Aune says.
She says most of the roof is intact and that the department has already started to try to determine the cause. According to police information, the roof is comprised of corrugated iron and steel structures.
